Boxer Friends Spain

Update posted by Linda Dodsworth On Jan 21, 2016

I was lucky enough to win a place in the 2016 London Marathon after running the York Marathon in 2014 for Boxer Dog Rescue Northern England. It takes up a lot of my free time training to be able to achieve the distance training in the winter has been particularly hard for me but knowing that I may be able to raise some money for this wonderful charity will keep me motivated to enable me to complete the marathon for this cause.

Training is going well, not long to go now before the big day and yes I'm terrified, this is a huge event and I have trained hard, hope it pays off on the day and all these lovely Boxers get the help they so deserve.

I did it, what a fantastic experience. I loved every step but it was tough. I managed a time of 4hrs 13mins 23secs and came 46th out of 203 lady runners in my age bracket. I also achieved a Good for Age place (if I ever want to run that distance again)! Thank you to everyone for your support and maybe if I leave this open for a couple of weeks more it will reach the magical £1000! You can always hope. Thanks again to each and every one of you that had the faith in me to complete this marathon.
